Description

A hard-hitting play that explores the harrowing history of church and state-sanctioned abuse against pregnant women out of wedlock in Ireland over the last 100 years.

Moving, angry and fuelled with fiery activism, this one-woman show is a rallying cry for women everywhere to rise up, stand tall and eradicate Ireland's ancient shame. Inspired by Aoibh Johnson's great-grandmother, the play has toured widely across Ireland and the UK, including sell-out shows in London, Belfast and Dublin. The play also had its Australian debut at the Adelaide Fringe in 2019.

Suitable for: 14+

Directed by: Cahal Clarke

Written by: Aoibh Johnson
